Starting in Year 7
Lincolnshire parents can apply for a place from 09 September 2016 for the 2017 Year 7 intake.
The ‘Lincolnshire School Admissions Guide’ and the ‘Going to Secondary School in Lincolnshire’ books are available to download below.
Please be aware that the schools oversubscription criteria in the Going to School in Lincolnshire book may be out of date, please see the schools full policy on our website instead.
The preferred method for applying for a Year 7 place is online. You can also apply by telephoning our Customer Service Centre on 01522 782030. Alternatively you can request a paper application using the same number.
You can apply for up to three state schools, in or out of county on your application. We strongly advise you to name three schools on your application as we cannot guarantee a place at your most preferred school.
If you do not live in Lincolnshire you must apply through your home local authority. You can name Lincolnshire schools on this application.
Different rules apply if you are Service Personnel, live abroad or live in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales. Further information can be found below.
Schools provide useful information on their own websites and they also produce a school prospectus. For further information on schools that are not in Lincolnshire, please visit the website for the school’s Local Authority.
The closing date for applications is 12 noon, 31 October 2016.
Even if the closing date has passed you can still apply for a school place. If the online and telephone application systems are no longer available you can still apply on a paper application, you can request one by telephoning our Customer Service Centre on 01522 782030. Late applications and changes received after 12 noon on 15 December 2016 will not be dealt with in time for offer day on 1 March 2017 and will be processed at a later date.
